Bona US, a global, sustainably-driven company that supplies products for installing, renovating, maintaining, and restoring premium floors, has earned Greenguard Gold Certification on its full line of wood floor adhesive products. The stringent certification validates Bona’s sustainability commitment by ensuring healthier indoor air quality, particularly for sensitive individuals. Bona is the first in the industry to receive Greenguard Gold Certification for its wood flooring adhesive products.

The Greenguardd Gold certification applies to Bona’s full line of silane-based wood flooring adhesive products including Bona R851, Bona R850T, Bona R859, and Bona R880. These products are known in the industry for exceptional green grab strength and unsurpassed final shear strength as well as extended open times and moisture protection. Additionally, all Bona adhesives can be used with radiant heat systems.

“By earning Greenguard Gold Certification for its products, Bona has demonstrated its dedication to supporting healthier indoor environments, a critically important effort, as many spend upwards of 90% of their time indoors,” said Albert Uggetti, vice president and general manager of UL’s environment & sustainability division.

Greenguard Gold Certification offers stricter certification criteria, considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly), and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. It is referenced by both The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System.
